“The UMKC-SIU Ireland Study Abroad Program is an absolutely amazing experience.  In just over a month, I made friends with about thirty-five other students from SIU and UMKC and their spouses, while getting to know some wonderful faculty members from both universities and Ireland. 

We studied European Union Law, Doing Business in Ireland, War Crimes Tribunals, and International Intellectual Property in the cities of Dingle, Galway, Dublin, and Bangor, Wales.  On long weekends, some of us even made short trips to places like Belfast, Limerick, and London. 

The experiences both inside and outside the classroom, along with the memories and relationships I’ve made, will last a lifetime.  This program is a remarkable, life-changing experience.”
